Shonta Watts

I am excited to be a part of the Edmond North High School Counseling Team. I have worked in education for 20 years, and my service in education has been a pleasant and rewarding part of my journey thus far. I enjoy working with and sharing the very important role of mentoring and guiding all of my students towards attaining and achieving their College & Career Goals, as well as, working with them to assure that they are well-balanced Emotionally, Socially, and Academically. As always, I live by my favorite quote:

“Treat other as if they are what they might be, and you will help them to become capable of being.”
